Nielsen Specialty Ammo was founded by Nick Nielsen, an avid shooter since a young boy. Nick has handed that tradition down to his five boys who also enjoy putting lead down range. The company was formed to provide the specialty ammo Nick wanted to shoot and figured others did as well, plus he needed a way to pay for his ammo.
Traditional firearms were always in the safe with a pellet gun or two in the mix. Once Nick found PCP air guns a new revolution was started. Wow, a pellet big enough and sufficient power to take medium game with. This brought new dimension to the shooting and the range became an all out spread of weapons and accessories.
Now the shooting tables are filled with not only a few rifles and hunguns, but traditional rifles and handguns, PCP pellet rifles, scuba tanks and hoses, chronographs and as many bullet and pellet combinations you can imagine. I think Mrs Nielsen is sorry Nick ever found a PCP air rifle as life has been much different ever since.
The company operates out of Big Bear City, CA which is 7000 feet above sea level in Southern California. If you live anywhere near Los Angeles or San Diego, this is the area you travel to for winter snow skiing. Nick lives 5 minutes from the Big Bear shooting range and 15 minutes from the dock to go fishing. If you are an outdoorsman, Big Bear offers a little of everything and still able to live in Southern California.
